Haiti 2010 Home Page
Eric and I made our second visit to Haiti July 15th - 19th. This was our first trip since the earth quake. We toured downtown Port-au-Prince and saw the devastation which destroyed most of the buildings we visited on our previous trip in 2009. We enjoyed the hospitality of Rio's sister in-law, Gigi, who allowed us to stay in her house and we also spent one night in Verrettes at the mission home. Thanks to the generous donations from the people of our church we were able to deliver a portable dental unit and generator to Dr. Amicia who visits Verrettes every Friday and provides free dental treatment. We helped her examine 70 patients and even gave a hand helping while she drilled and filled 2 patients. It was quite a site seeing her work non-stop for 6 hours. Read more in our journal and take a look at the pictures to better understand what we experienced. We plan to return in 2011 when we will be delivering and installing a solar powered water pump, water storage tank and sinks. The school in Verrettes will finally have running water!
